Ye Old Mill Campground
We were so busy when we were in West Virginia with family and friends that we really needed a little down time.
The town of Burnt Cabins according to the internet has 205 people in town. I think that might be an exaggeration. You very seldom see a car go by on the road.
We spent some time visiting with our neighbors, who recently bought a Redwood and became full timers. It was another beautiful day but I was still concerned about the leeches that Bill found. No checking out the surrounding attractions today, instead everything came out of the basement and I made sure there weren't any more leeches.
The rest of the day was spent deciding which way to head north. I now have reservations right up to the Escapade Rally. I know those of you who know us will find this unbelievable. I don't want to tell you how long that took. I've come to the conclusion that you can't see it all and you have to pick and choose. For those of you that have every park and destination picked out for months ahead, I applaud you.
Remember me saying back in April when we left for the July rally in Vermont, that I was worried about having enough time to get there. I think now we should be right on time.
We checked out the stream because I heard there were flash flood warnings out. Not sure if it was this county or not.
There is a camp store here that is very unique. Our nightly walk included a stop in the store for ice cream. I had one scoop that filled the bowl. I was surprised that besides the hand scooped ice cream, they also had ice cream bars. I mentioned that to the owner and he said some people didn't want to spend more than the 35 cents for an ice cream bar.
We also walked out with a 20 ounce jar of home made strawberry preserves which was less than $5.00.
The Grist Mill which dates back to the mid 1700's is open to the public on Sunday's at 11 am. It is free to those in the campground.
It was a much needed quiet day.
